    I gave you a 6/10 because its labeled as Excellent.. and back then that was an Excellent system! you hit the nail on the head brother. That is the reason I became infatuated with electronics also. Its an irreplaceable feeling you get the first time you press that power switch on the first...

    I remember when I had my system in 2005 it was an ABIT(r.i.p.)AS8-V with an Intel chip-set and a Pentium 4 775 socket (one of the first at the time ).... good times .. I also used it for 1.6.. and CSS when that was out.. I had the ATi Radeon 9800XT from back then and that card was and still is a...

    ASUS MS series LED Monitor?

    So far this LED MS series monitor from ASUS is the best one I have ever owned! The display it has is amazingly crisp, and the 1 million:1 contrast ratio combined with the 2ms response time... just amazing picture quality. And this bad boy is freaking sleek looking and is thin as hell.. great for...

    Your PC ATM

    Your right.. it shouldn't go out so soon. But we all know hardware and one day it can work great and the next day its dead. Either way I would replace the battery just to be safe..also never hurts to have a new battery if it isn't the problem. Plus once you rule out the dead battery idea... you...

    PC Build/Spec advice required

    Personally.. I would look into the Giga ud5 as well... you dont need the extreme version. Also, ditch the 4870x2 and grab 1(or 2 ) 4890's.. you'll be fine with one though. Also you dont need the ethernet adapter either.. the board will have one or two built in. On a second note.. if you really...

    Am2+ or AM3

    IMHO.. I would say AM3 and be future proof... I mean most of the newer chips from AMD are going to be AM3 anyways right.. plus you should look into the new AMD 'Tweaker" thingy thats coming out before you choose so soon
